    Does anyone know what the makeup policy is? I'm just returning from vacation to see that I missed this morning's full medical examination. Any information would be a big help. So afraid they're gonna make me start the process all over

    Just call and reschedule its not a big deal. Even if your list number is going to get called for next class hypothetically, there is enough time for you to get everything done.

    Ok thanks man. Wasn't sure how much missing an appointment would delay me or set me back

    Anyone that took the CPAT recently hear anything about scheduling their intake?
    Took mine 3 weekends ago and haven't gotten any calls about it.
    Just want to make sure the wait is a normality

    Did you call in to find out if you passed?

    I thought as long you completed all stations and were given the packet to fill out at the end you passed, and that they only call you about the physical if you failed the drug test?

    I know I passed everything with flying colors but I'm going to call first thing Monday.
    Hope I didn't mess myself up

    You have to call DCAS to find out if you passed. I called 3-4 days after my CPAT. Then the investigator that's assigned to you will call you to setup an intake interview where you'll bring all the documentation that's requested in the packet as well as a money order

    Can anyone shed light on how the pay period turns out to be regarding hours? Especially now with the 12 hour tours.

    I figured it was a lighter version, heard a few NYPD buddies tell me their Psych examination is crucial.

    There are 8, 12, and 16hr shifts which vary depending on the station and don't think probies get much of a say on their hours. Every other week you get an extra day off. You can work up to 16hrs OT per week before needing the LTs permission to pick up more. And you get paid every other week

    Is there anyway you can put in to have off a specific day for special reasons? Or even a specific time for a set day during the week? (Say for example unavailable 8am-12pm every Thursday for school reasons?) Whether it be because of school, religious reasons, second job, etc?
